There are photos on the internet of country star Shania Twain and music sensation Taylor Swift together posing with guns.

These photos were brought to my attention by a co-worker this morning, and I’ve never been more disappointed about anything in my life. There is literally no excuse for me to not have been aware of these two awesome pictures.

Swift and Twain are two of the most famous women to ever sing a song, and there’s photo evidence of them at each other’s side with weapons. It doesn’t get much better than that.

My goal is to force these photos to go viral in 2017 to make up for the fact I didn’t even know they existed since they were shot in 2011. It seems like the right thing to do.

It was pointed out to me these photos were taken before the boom of Twitter and Instagram, which is probably why they’re really known about. It’s one of the greatest miscarriages of internet justice I’ve ever seen. There’s not a fan of music, freedom and guns on this planet who shouldn’t be aware of these incredible pictures.

I will never allow a failure of this magnitude to ever happen again. The world needs its photos of two music stars with their weapons.
